2020 Creative

Climate Awards

November 15th - December 15th, 2020

Virtually and in NYC Storefronts​

The Creative Climate Awards (CCA) are an annual series of events that showcase artists creating climate-inspired public works and actions. Over the last decade, CCA has showcased climate-inspired artwork from around the globe, including 194 artists from 31 countries and reached over 200,000 audience members.

Responding to local needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our 2020 CCAs are bringing the diversity of NYC creatives, environmental and social justice advocates to your doorstep.  Join us for virtual events and see the artwork virtually and in-person in storefronts across NYC.
